VELLORE: Chief Educational Officer (CEO) V Kumar appealed to teachers to take up the role of guides for students. He made this appeal on Thursday while inaugurating a training camp for science teachers, organised by the Education Department at Hindu Higher Secondary School in Ambur.
The CEO pointed out that teachers should work hard to devise innovative teaching methods to ensure hundred per cent pass in science in board examinations. “You should create an impression that students of Vellore can never fail in science,” he told them.
He also advised them to work with the slow-learners on a daily basis and impart skills to help them score more marks. “If the focus is on scoring more marks, there can be no failures in the subject,” he reasoned. He also appealed to students to make use of free materials supplied by the State government to enhance their learning ability.
District educational officer Priyadarshini, inspector of schools Damordaran, trainer Velusamy and programme coordinator Maharajan were among those present on the occasion. Around 360 science teachers participated in the meet.
The CEO also inaugurated a refresher course for teachers handling subjects for class X and XII in the district at Venkateswara Higher Secondary School and Lakshmi Garden Matriculation School on Thursday. The course aimed at increasing the pass percentage in various subjects in board examinations. Venkateswaran, headmaster, Government Girls Higher Secondary School at Namakkal and Palaniswamy, headmaster of Government School at Krishnapuram in Karur were the resource persons for the training.
